Wrath Arrives Next Year On Consoles
Owlcat Games has confirmed that Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous is set to release for console March 1, 2022. The PC version is slated to launch on September 2, 2021.
Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous will ask players to a mythic path that grants their character unique skills and narrative arcs. As Commander, characters can become a celestial Angel, a raging Demon, a powerful Lich, a cunning Trickster, an otherworldly Aeon, a rebellious Azata, a wise Gold Dragon, an insatiable Swarm That Walks — or remain mortal and walk the arduous path toward becoming a living Legend.
Mythic transformations allow characters to increase the rank of their chosen path to earn new skills and abilities and have a great impact on the world around them, including Drezen, the biggest fortress of the game and its capital city.
The new trailer showcases Crusade mode, which has players select their general, change the size of their army, and explore the map of the world. It also shows how many movement points are left, overall combat morale, army strength, and enemy strengths.
It also shows off animal companions that can be used for mounted combat and come with their own progression system and customization options.
I am a big fan of RPGs inspired by tabletop games like Pathfinder and Dungeons & Dragons. I wasn’t a huge fan of the last Pathfinder game, Pathfinder: Kingmaker, but this really looks to be an improvement, and I’m more than willing to give it a chance.
While I will certainly be playing on PC on September 2, it is good to know console players won’t have too long to wait. It is a little disappointing that the game isn’t native to next-gen consoles, but you just can’t ask too much from a Kickstarter project.
